Finally got around to uploading some pictures....my bees are really producing a lot of honey this year. First part of the honey flow the honey was real light, now it is much darker. My weakest hive is now producing honey as well. The super on top is nearly full. The other two hives has produced about 40lb each with the top supers nearly full again! The hive in the middle has some rather ill bees, but they are producing a lot of honey. I was considering replacing the queen but I think I will wait until next spring. We are in a dry spell with the weather (Piedmont N.C.) Bees have slowed down with not much blooming. Need rain badly!

These bees are first year packaged bees I bought the end of March, didn't expect them do this well.

I have a quick question. what is with the upside down bucket? is it to capture swarms or used as a feeder?
I think it's a bee eating bird trap! When the bee eater gets underneath, the cable tension is released - AND YOU GOT 'EM! :)
